BIG LAZY, New York City’s gritty instrumental trio has flourished for over 20 years, creating film music
and playing its singular brand of guitar noir and highway twang from the Whitney Museum of American
Art to the Opéra National de Lyon. Simultaneously noir and pastoral, gothic and modern, the trio conjures
images from big sky country to seedy back rooms with cinematic clarity. Combining elements of Blues,
Rockabilly, Surf and Jazz with a fiery performance style, their most recent album, Dear Trouble, captures
the essence of their legendary live shows.
STEPHEN ULRICH, guitarist and Big Lazy founder has released his first solo album Music from This
American Life. The album is a collection of 10 pieces Ulrich was commissioned to write for Ira Glass’
iconic radio program of the same name. Ulrich is also known for composing the soundtrack for the HBO
series Bored To Death.
On November 10th at John and Peter’s Big Lazy will perform music from their 6 studio albums as well
Music from This American Life.

film scores of Bernard Herrmann.” The New Yorker
